Absolutely Outstanding Introduction to Ecollar Training

Just finished up the video series Ecollar: Basic Obedience. I own a very high energy Epagneul Brittany. As a result of this video training, our dog is more calm, more attentive to us. We have tried every collar, leash, harness, and multiple trainers. We have had the most success training our dog following the lessons in this video series. Robin’s approach to Ecollar training make it easy to understand and apply. One of the great benefits of this program is… Read more “Absolutely Outstanding Introduction to Ecollar Training”

Life Changing

We have embarked on raising our fourth dog and our third puppy. Our previous puppy was the same breed, Barbet. We have very much benefited from the training and support provided by the puppy pre-school course. I cannot imagine how we managed without this course so clearly focused on baby puppies. Our boy is now fourteen weeks old. We started the course shortly before picking up our puppy and were so busy raising him that we got behind. We completed… Read more “Life Changing”

A Terrific Course

Great course with a terrific facilitator. The program is a more in depth study of how the nuances of the ecollar, our body language, rewards, activity, diet, and the dog’s personality all work in tandem. Robin delivers instruction that appeals to multiple learning styles, and offers platforms where participants can interact and learn from each other. She is very attentive to her students, and extremely supportive throughout the course. I highly recommend to trainers and pet dog owners… Read more “A Terrific Course”

Ecollar: Beyond the Basics

Exceeded Expectations

This course helped me so much gain confidence in my training. I have taken other courses before & some really lacked clarity and created more confusion for me. This course was clear & to the point which I desperately needed. I now have not only a better understanding of proper e-collar use, but I feel I am a better all around dog trainer & coach for my clients. Robin is super helpful, and you can tell she genuinely cares about… Read more “Exceeded Expectations”

Like having Robin as your personal one on one dog trainer

Taking this course is like having Robin as your personal one on one dog trainer. Each week you are assigned modules to view where Robin shares her immense knowledge of dogs and training topics. Participants are encouraged to share videos of their training for Robin to view. You then receive personal recommendations on what you are doing well as well as things you can add or change to increase the outcome you are looking to achieve. During the weekly zoom… Read more “Like having Robin as your personal one on one dog trainer”

Fantastic Refresher!

My breeder strongly recommended this puppy preschool program. It was a fantastic refresher and even a great refresher for my 10yr old pup. I reviewed this course prior to picking up my pup so I would have the tools I needed ahead of time. Highly recommend it, loved Robin and her wise… Read more “Fantastic Refresher!”

The Real Deal!

Robin’s E collar: Beyond the Basics Virtual Course was awesome! Those 6 weeks of learning from Robin was such a positive & rewarding investment for my future! I have followed Robin for years on social media and I have also invested in other on-line courses she offers. Robin is the real deal! Her way of teaching and guiding you through her training techniques are simply the best. If you have been wanting to learn how an Ecollar works and how… Read more “The Real Deal!”

Game changer for our over-aroused pup

The training in these videos along with using the eCollar as instructed literally saved our relationship with our dog. We were dealing with a significant over-arousal issue with our 6mo Bernedoodle pup who was pulling severely, jumping on people, lunging at cars, chasing leaves, and a long list of behaviors making walks or greetings impossible with typical puppy training. Her underlying issue was extreme cortisol levels from allowing herself to become over excited that would make her unable to process… Read more “Game changer for our over-aroused pup”

A humane approach to ecollar training

I just finished your 5 DVD series on e-collar training and wanted to say thank you. I have a 5 month old lab who has been quick to learn but has recently become more independent minded while in the field and I’ve been worried about his safety for that reason. I was very reluctant to get an e-collar as I remember the ones from 50 years ago that my family had which were only used in a negative way to… Read more “A humane approach to ecollar training”

Out of the fog and into the light!

I recently took Robin MacFarlane’s virtual Ecollar: Beyond the Basics course. I am so glad I took this course! It was like driving across the Golden Gate Bridge out of the fog and into the light. I am supercharged and full of confidence, knowledge, assurance, and positive real solutions to training dogs with an ecollar.  Robin’s ability to explain the use of an e-collar in training a dog to respond in a positive, calm, relaxed way is simply awesome. Any… Read more “Out of the fog and into the light!”

Great resource!

I was hesitant to purchase this since it is a virtual course, however after realizing it was the same cost as one private lesson, I decided to give it a shot. It was well worth the money! If you’re like me, and a little hesitant to use an e-collar because you’re not sure if you’ll be doing it right, this course will be very valuable. I like things to be instructed in a step-wise fashion and Robin does that in… Read more “Great resource!”
